Metroid Retrospective

This link is to the first part in a five-part series called the Metroid Retrospective. It goes over the history of the franchise and sums it all up pretty well, even if it goes out of order.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQoUS...eature=related

Either way, it's worth checking out.

This is going to sound so lame, but I wish I could find somewhere where I could download this and the rest of them and burn them all in order on DVD.

If anyone finds something like that, let me know.

Use a converter, you can convert them as video files off youtube using one.

Saru786 has a little shameless behaviour in the past

Wow, this is great. I've haven't played one Metroid game, but this really helped me out with the story.

But here's a little fact for you: Metroid doesn't do well in Japan, it only lives on because of its popularity overseas. This is also probably why Nintendo outsourced the development of Metroid to a US based studio.

Metroid doesn't do well in Japan? I find it hard to believe any Nintendo franchise doesn't do well in Japan.

In terms of money, the Metroid franchise is the fourth-highest grossing Nintendo franchise (Mario, Pokemon, and Zelda beat it). So obviously it has to do pretty well in Japan. I can't believe enough money would come in over seas to put Metroid above Star Fox, Mario Kart, Yoshi, Wario, Mario Party, Smash Bros., Nintendogs, and Donkey Kong.
